My Pet Pal: Spike and Rex

These are our cats Spike (fluffy) and Rex (short hair). They are brothers. They are always cuddling, purring and staying by my side. Every night, well, picture this, you’re innocently sleeping when “MEOW!” Yep, Rex wakes you up needing more cuddles and Spike is looking for petting and is meowing so loud. That’s my life. I love my two cats, Spike and Rex. They enjoy playing with laser pointers, balls of paper, shedding fur and tearing up the couches, which my dad isn’t too happy about. Ah, the life of a cat.
